"My sails are always ready, my anchor always stowed. And though I found my harbor, I set sail again, because that’s what ships were meant to do."
-- Prescott Reynolds

…If the greatest adversity you face is some nitwit asking if you’re planning to work at Starbucks for the rest of your life because you majored in English, kindly remind him that Starbucks has great benefits and really great lattes. And then throw one in his face. Just kidding, tell him your mom works there with a confused look on your face. Kidding again; tell him you’re not worried about money because you’ve got something on the side and then wink at him. Kidding! Ask him if he’s happy slinging insurance. Sorry! I’m done.

Look… You are never going to make everyone happy with your decisions, but that’s why they’re called your decisions – they’re only supposed to make you happy.

Now go be nice to your local barista because some people actually do work at Starbucks and most of them are pretty nice. And by nice I mean hot.


Nothing like a little ill-timed email RE: job stuff to get the heart pumping with excitement/anxiety. God.

Big stuff has happened today and I am still processing it. Meanwhile, I don’t think I should have consumed so much coffee and sugar after getting a full-night’s rest. 
Happy, but over-caffeinated and fidgety and yes, still anxious. At least my hair looks good?

Okay, I’m overall happy, but…

Don’t you hate it when you find an awesome company and you fall in love with what they do, but you never reach out because you have no connections, no experience, and don’t even live in the area?

Shit. This is worse than liking a person.
